    The Hidden Gifts of Anger

    Does anger have anything to teach us in a world with so much violence and suffering?  Join me this week for an exploration around anger.  I'll weave threads from David Whyte, Bill Plotkin and Joanna Macy, plus share a few personal stories about my own relationship with anger.  Enjoy!  Or get pissed off.

    Stuff that Helps! 5 The Magical Other

    Stuff that Helps! 5 The Magical Other

    "You complete me!" Not really.  As a follow up to the last episode on the Shadow, I'm diving into the image of the Magical Other.  Let's talk about projections and fantasies in intimate, long-term relationships.  And how to grow up.  This episode is in my series Stuff that Helps!, where I popularize stuff I've found helpful.  This week will be about the work of James Hollis, a Jungian Analyst and author who coined the phrase the Magical Other.  According to Hollis the fantasy of the Magical Other is one of the chief sources of suffering in long-term relationships, not to mention a kind of false god in the Western world.  Enjoy!
